“No member of the Party shall engage in conduct which in the opinion of the NEC is prejudicial, or in any act which in the opinion of the NEC is grossly detrimental to the Party. The NEC shall take account of any codes of conduct currently in force and shall regard any incident which in their view might reasonably be seen to demonstrate hostility or prejudice based on age; disability; gender reassignment or identity; marriage and civil partnership; pregnancy and maternity; race; religion or belief; sex; or sexual orientation as conduct prejudicial to the Party: these shall include but not be limited to incidents involving racism, anti-semitism, Islamophobia or otherwise racist language, sentiments, stereotypes or actions, sexual harassment, bullying or any form of intimidation towards another person on the basis of a protected characteristic as determined by the NEC, wherever it occurs, as conduct prejudicial to the Party. “

THIS is the Stalinist language of the radical, feminist left and this is the language which sealed the fate of suicide AM Carl Sargeant. He had done wrong because under the terms of this, a wide variety of things could be considered to be wrong. In fact, take your pick.

Free speech, healthy interaction between people and open communication is totally impossible under these draconian rules.

Instead, we have tragic stories like Mr Sargeant’s, a good man with good intentions who devoted his time to help others but was hounded out by the very political party he proudly served and represented.

This kind of diversity, inclusivity and multicultural militant and zealous policing of language, expression and behaviour  – growing menacingly in our universities, particularly in the NUS, and spreading ever further into British society like a cancer – is now having hugely adverse effects on the mental health of vulnerable and isolated people who may have, often unwittingly, transgressed these rules.

Solicitors acting for Mr Sargeant received letters from the Labour Party with this frightening diktat from high command which could have been written by Stalin himself with a threatening warning if you break the rules from his hitman Beria.

We then had the unedifying situation of Labour shadow cabinet member dithering Dawn Butler first stating that Mr Sargeant had not been dealt with fairly and agreeing that an independent inquiry was now necessary then changing her mind when the Labour high command “re-educated” her.

Welsh Labour has stayed ominously silent on the matter though first minister Carwyn Jones, who faces calls to resign, will today face journalists and p0liticians in Cardiff Bay who will press him for an explanation of why he went public on accusations made against Mr Sargeant.
